Do you feel embarrassed by your smile? If so, you are not alone. Many people feel self-conscious about their smile, which is why smile restorations have risen in popularity. Here at Ross Family Dental in Salinas, California, our team is proud to talk to you about dental crown restorations and why they might be able to help you.

To begin, dental crowns are custom-made to cover a tooth to restore it to proper health, shape, and size. There are many reasons a crown might be chosen to restore a tooth. Some reasons include cavities that grew too large to fill, cracked or chipped teeth, a tooth that has become weak, and any other reason your dentist may need to place a crown over a tooth to protect it.

Dental crowns are blended to match your existing teeth, so only your dentist would know it was there. Your dental crown is not a victim to tooth decay, however, your surrounding teeth are, so brushing and flossing are still needed to take proper care of your crown and oral health.

If you still have questions or would like to know if a dental crown restoration is a great option for you, please call us today at 831-422-5351 to set up an appointment with Dr. Steven Ross. Our friendly staff is happy to restore your smile.
